Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2013
When this 2013 Brunello saw release, critics saw a bold, beautiful future in its rich fruits, brocade-like texture, and wonderful rose-petal aromatics. A decade later, this gorgeous Brunello is showing its potential, unwrapping its many layers to reveal a tapestry of pure Sangiovese fruits surrounded by worn saddle leather, crushed rose petals, pipe tobacco, pressed wild herbs, and touches of tea and tar. Silky tannins slide effortlessly across the palate, while the wine’s elegant mineral core and fresh acidity keep it lively — this Castiglion del Bosco wine is a treat for fans of mature Brunello!
